    I'm thinking about painting my stock wheels black, but am unsure about it. I'm hoping people will post some pics of what it looks like! I have a white one but all are welcome, the more the merrier! :D

    rustoleum self etching primer and Rustoleum hammered black paint.

    use playing cards and stick them inbetween your wheel and tire and it works perfect for "masking off". get two decks and you can do two wheels at a time

    worst mod you could possible do to them IMO. Been there and done that and I am not happy with it. Black is a PITA to keep clean and shows every scratch. I also think it's played out and jumped the shark

    black old wheels

    nice! The problem is in a lot of pictures you can't see the rim at all, a lot of nice pictures here.

    I agree, everyone is doing it, but it looks nice I think. Adds a degree of toughness some how in the look

    Started out with Black high temp BBQ paint but I guess their idea of black is extremely light grey... not sure if it changes with heat but I couldn't stand it. So I went back and got a can of hammered black and went over the high temp and came out with this. I really like it I am glad I didn't go with straight black.
